Sanna Marin: Finnish Prime Minister tests negative for drugs after party video

Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin has tested negative for drugs after a leaked video showed her dancing at a party.

A statement on the government website on Monday confirmed no narcotics were found in the test, which Ms Marin had paid for herself.

Ms Marin, 36, leader of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) had agreed to the test after criticism from opposition politicians, who claimed it showed inappropriate behaviour.

Her opponents had called on Ms Marin to take the test after it was alleged that she was socialising with people who used illegal substances.

But Finnish women have been sharing videos of themselves dancing to express support for the world’s youngest head of state, with the row branded ‘ridiculous’.

When she announced she was taking the test last week, Ms Marin said: “I have nothing to hide. I have never taken drugs. Personally, I did not take drugs, nor did I consume anything other than alcohol.

“I danced, sang, and partied – perfectly legal things. And I’ve never been in a situation where I’ve seen or known of others [using drugs].”

Ms Marin also said that she “resents” that private videos filmed in a private space were leaked to the public.
